Report: U.S. Conducting Secret Missions Inside Iran

The United States has been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran to help identify potential nuclear, chemical and missile targets, The New Yorker magazine reported Sunday.

The article, by award-winning reporter Seymour Hersh, said the secret missions have been going on at least since last summer with the goal of identifying target information for three dozen or more suspected sites.

Hersh quotes one government consultant with close ties to the Pentagon as saying, "The civilians in the Pentagon want to go into Iran and destroy as much of the military infrastructure as possible."

One former high-level intelligence official told The New Yorker, "This is a war against terrorism, and Iraq (news - web sites) is just one campaign. The Bush administration is looking at this as a huge war zone. Next, we're going to have the Iranian campaign."

Undeterred by the disaster in Iraq, the Bush Administrations seems intent on adding the THIRD Vietnam to its list of achievements.

A lesson my father learned though painful experience is that you cannot borrow your way out of debt. Perhaps someday Necons will learn that you cannot fight your way out of a quagmire.
